Adobe Audition is a powerful application for recording and mixing audio for video, podcasting, and sound effect design. Audition is also an industry-leading tool for cleaning up recordings and audio restoration.
In this series, you’ll learn how to record, edit, and apply effects to audio clips, as well as record and adjust multitrack sessions in Audition and work directly with audio tracks in Adobe Premiere Pro.

What you'll need
In this video, you’ll learn about the Audition user interface and get an overview of the Waveform and Multitrack modes.
In this video, you’ll record a sample audio track, change the volume, apply a fade-in and fade-out effect, add a Studio Reverb, and then save your edited audio file.
In this video, you’ll combine multiple audio files into a complete composition using the Multitrack editor. You’ll also use a Dynamics Processing effect that automatically lowers the audio level of one track when there’s a voiceover track present — an effect called “music ducking.”
In this video, you’ll produce a multitrack session using a video as a reference. After adding a crossfade between two pieces of music, you’ll use the Essential Sound panel to adjust the clarity of the sound and reduce the volume by adjusting the level of the entire track, rather than the individual clips.
In this video, you’ll learn how Audition integrates seamlessly with Premiere Pro CC. Starting with a Premiere Pro sequence that contains a noisy voice recording, you’ll use the noise reduction features offered by Audition to clean up this audio track.
In this video, you’ll learn the differences between the waveform display, which indicates amplitude over time, and the spectral frequency display, which indicates amplitude at specific frequencies and is great for adjusting — and removing — the amplitude of specific frequencies.
